It was not Big enough to pay 10€ for. The whole visit lasted for about 35 min. and we listened to all the audio guides. Would not recommend.

Went in without great expectations, and was overwhelmed by the diverse display, the intelligent presentation and genuine coverage of Freud's life in, and out, of Vienna. Highly recommended.

Nice experience to see the real building where all that sad things happened during the war. But the most significant Freud collection is in the UK. 9 euro for this tiny museum was too much. Audioguide: pick up the German one if you understand, the English one provides you limited info. Again: it's interesting to see the scene of the... More

The atmosphere of being in the building Freud worked and lived in was fantastic. Being a Freud enthusiast I really think they could have done so much more with the place but perhaps my expectations were too high. I was also denied student discount (despite valid card) because I am over 26 which was disappointing.

It was nice to learn a few facts about Freud, but we all expected much more to see and learn about Freuds work. Especially as there are still a lot of place to give better insight into his work.

This small museum gives you an excellent overview and insight into Freud's character, his thinking and his creativity. Objects are very well presented and as the museum undergoes renovation, it is expected to get even better. If you are tired of imperial Vienna sights, this is en excellent alternative.

Got the student discount. We got to know the history of Frued's life, works, interests, and practice. We came to know a number of unknown facts about Frued

Very interesting to enter the residential building and the apartment where Freud lived and worked. Many interesting items on display, but a few things could be handled better, for example the movie room included several really old TVs in the center of the room and 10 chairs around them. 2 TVs did not even work so there was no chance...

Worth it if you are there and not sure what to do, I was there during a psychiatric conference and was happy I managed to see his old practice. Not very much to see. The souvenir shop was nice.

The experience of going to the museum (which is Freud's old apartment) was pretty cool.. ringing the bell, and entering a residential building. While there were definitely good gems in the museum, it was a little overwhelming and even the most general of things weren't described without using the headset. I wish there were a few things highlighted so that... More

Staying in Serviten Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
Serviten Quarter
The Serviten Quarter is an inner city neighborhood with many private charms. Popular with French and American expats, Sigmund Freud’s neighborhood boasts his former practice and apartments, now turned into a museum. Stunning Liechtenstein Garden Palace houses the private art collection of Prince Adam of Liechtenstein. Romantic Strudlhofstiege close to the palace is a fantastic photo spot. With their small independent shops and eateries, the main streets of Liechtensteinstrasse, Porzellangasse and Servitengasse reveal much of this area’s character. Peek into baroque Serviten Church, with its richly decorated dome and walls. At the Old Jewish cemetery in Seegasse you can see one of the most precious cemeteries in Europe with tombstones almost 500 years old.
